review Where the Desert Meets the Sea Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Werner Sonne ë 3 characters free download õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ë Werner Sonne She tries to take her own life in despairAfter awakening in the hospital Judith learns that Hana a Muslim Arab nurse has saved her life by donating her own blood While the two women develop a fragile bond each can’t help but be drawn deeper into the political machinations tearing the country apart After witnessing the repeated attacks inflicted on the Jews Judith makes t 15 stars I wanted to love this book SO BAD but it fell so flat for me It covers the narrative of the emergence of Israel as a state which is something so rarely covered in historical fiction The subject matter itself was incredibly interesting to me but I think I would ve rather just read a non fiction book about this time rather than thisMy biggest problem with this book was the writing I understand that this is a translation so I m not sure exactly how that effects the writing However what I read was choppy and all over the place There was no fluidity it randomly jumped from perspective to perspective with no indication or warning I had such a hard time keeping track of the myriad of characters thrown into the plot Speaking of the characters they were one dimensional and had absolutely no depth I had only a slight interest in about two of the characters who were somewhat fleshed out Many character s personalities were also poorly planned they uickly changed their fundamental beliefs for the sake of the story line In addition this book was very biased While it claims not to be the author clearly shows a preference and resolves the stories of the Jews while leaving stories unresolved for the Arab characters I saw Judith and Hana as euals on either sides of the violence when comparing the stories of these two characters who should ve been eual you can clearly see the bias A much effective approach to this book would ve been following just these two characters and the way their lives aligned to expose the euality between the two sides rather than creating a further divide The abundance of perspectives added nothing to this book except confusion I can see the effort the author was trying to make by including so many different narratives but ultimately it was executed poorly

    Werner Sonne ë 3 characters free download õ eBook or Kindle ePUB ë Werner Sonne (PDF/EPUB) [Where the Desert Meets the Sea] Werner Sonne set out to write a novel about the state of the Holy Land and the Arab Israeli conflict following WWII with Britain's pullout of the area and the Jewish resettlement He wanted to write a book that did not take sides favoring neither Palestinians Jews nor British who in my estimation were the real instigators of much of the conflict that took place In Sonne's attempt to remain neutral he filled the
